Custom Made Fangs
The Black Bats are a collaboration of like minded musicians drawn to Vampiric imagery and sound, with elements of operetic resonance. Their music combines a synth and keyboard foundation, carried by a driving drum and bass rhythm, layered with dark and erthereal vocals and sonic guitars. Ambient synth pop sound with a darker tone and celestial voices. Though compared to the likes of The Sisters of Mercy and Switchblade Symphony, the Black Bats have established themselves with a distinct sound of their own within this Dark Wave genre.

Father Sebastiaan and the Sabretooth Clan are pleased to announce the new Endless Night Castle “Vampire Conclave” to be held at Castle Burg Finstergrün in Austria on July 9th to 14th 2015. This event will be different from other Endless Night events in that it is best describes as “VampCamp” inspired by a mix of Hogwarts, Burning Man and Game of Thrones and is infact designed to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Father Sebastiaan’s Fang Business.
There will be a maximum of 200 tickets available total and multiple options for accommodations including a room in the castle (€40 per night including breakfast, first come / first serve as there is a limit of 100 beds), local hotels and even camping on the castle grounds. Tickets can be purchased from the Endless Night Castle page on www.endlessnight.com are €250 until December 1st / €299 after and will include all the weekends activities but not transportation, accommodation or extras like lunch, dinner and drinks.
Events will include two Vampire Ball events, hiking, sword fighting, fire shows, storytelling, live music, fetish dungeon / darkroom, seminars on many subjects, belly dance and burlesque and much more. The best part is all the participants need to contribute one proposed project be it a performance, seminar or volunteering, making the Endless Night Castle event a truly interactive experience inspired by the culture of Burning Man.
Burg Finstergruen is a 12th century “stronghold” first mentioned in 1138 and the name translates to mean “dark trench.” In 1841 the castle was destroyed in a forest fire and was rebuilt in 1899. By the 1950s it became a Protestant youth group summer camp and was finally purchased in 1972 by a youth group. The owners are very open minded and VERY excited to receive us… giving us full freedom to be ourselves and celebrate our Sabretooth Clan traditions, culture and community.

Finally I want to tell you a bit about my trip to New Orleans. It was just amazing!
Heute möchte ich euch eindlich mal ein bisschen was von meiner unheimlich schönen New Orleans Reise erzählen!
I met the lovely Eve Harker at Hamburg Airport and together we went to New York where we had one day to explore the City before going to New Orleans.
Father Sebastiaan had tried to organize a tour guide for us but sadly she got sick and couldn’t do the tour. So we decided to be proper tourists and book a fancy bus tour to see as much of New York as possible – and I did my best to take as many photos as I could :) In the evening we even went to the Anne Rice book signing and got our new copies of Prince Lestat signed by her. I didn’t take a photo with her but at least I shook her hand, yay :D
I am only posting this one collage for now and will make another blog post with tourist photos :D
